Follow George Maurer on yet another of his bicycle adventures, as he crisscrosses America’s western deserts and mountains in support of a cure for cancer, in honor of his friend, Carolyn Held.

In the summer of 2015, George biked from San Francisco to Salt Lake City, and then biked 14,110′ to the summit of Pike’s Peak in the 2nd annual Carolyn Held Memorial Bike Ride.  He has raised over $30,000 for cancer research, since his initial 3600 mile coast to coast solo bike ride from Seattle to Boston in 48 days, in summer of 2014.
